Have you been losing sleep since Monday because you’ve been dying to see the finished project? Well my friends, the wait is over.
1. It hasn’t been sunny in the past few months here in Seattle, so I’m actually in pain in that photo above.
2. I had about 1/2 a yard less than I needed to properly line up the plaids on this shirt, which is why the front placket is off. And I die a little bit on the inside every time I see it, because plaids that don’t line up on garments drive me insane. But I knew I wanted to make a blouse out of this fabric, and technically I did make it work. Barely – I had zero fabric left, but it’s still wearable. And luckily since I’m the one wearing the shirt, I can go the majority of the day without seeing the front of it. I’m sorry in advance if you see me today.
3. The plaids down the side seams line up. Nobody cares, but I had to include that for my sake.
4. I made the skirt too!
